NEET Chemistry The p-Block Elements (XII) Questions Solved

The hybridisation of atomic orbitals of nitrogen in NO2+,NO3- and NH4+ are 

(A) sp, sp3 and sp2 respectively

(B) sp, sp2 and sp3 respectively

(C) sp2, sp and sp3 respectively

(D) sp2, sp3 and sp respectively

No. of hybrid orbitals = Total no. of sigma bonds +lone pair of electrons. The no. of sigma bonds in NO2+,NO3- and NH4+ are 2,3 and 4 respectively. So the hybridisation is sp, sp2 and sp3 respectively.
